Happy New Year :-)

OK, for Miss Murphy.... a slideshow of my finishes for 2008 :-)

I heard today that Michelle received the little birthday token that I sent to her. I totally expected it to arrive a couple of days late, but the USPS got it to her on her actual birthday (today)!

My, my, my! Carol, you have stitched A LOT of pieces. I am in shock at your slideshow ~ it is great!

Happy New Year! And good luck on your January 2009 goals!

Miss Murphy has a hard time deciding by which she's most impressed, your gorgeous stitching or the fact that a simply cat from the Netherlands can get a stitcher in the US to make a slide show LOL.
It's a lovely show Carol, thanks so much for putting it together, I will go back and see it again.
